Paul and Sam lead our class. They provided impressively competent, smoot, entertaining, and professional instruction. The information itself is delivered in a very digestible and practical format. Range safety couldn't have been better even as they got us to push ourselves. Everyone there was performing significantly better by the end of the day. These guys are a WEALTH of knowledge and a pleasure to learn from. Watch the classes online before hand, show up with the attitude of a sponge, and this will be a great experience.
Josh and Paul teaching side by side is reminiscent of Schwarzenegger and DeVito in the beloved 1988 buddy film Twins. Jokes aside, both of these instructors have a contagious passion for their subject matter. In this foundational skills course, they break down various training evolutions into accessible nuggets that can be picked up by shooters of any skill level. After this course, you will simultaneously have your confidence boosted at the ease with which you can rapid fire and transition from multiple targets, and humbled at the training journey which lies ahead.
I didn’t know what to expect going into this class, but the knowledge I left with compares to no other training I’ve had. As I reflect on how much I learned in one day, I am truly in awe. I took this class with John and Josh, and the instructors gave all students’ individualized attention and really took time to ensure we understood what was being taught. They both made all concepts/lessons easy for everyone to understand, so anyone at any level would do great in this course. I highly recommend this course and can’t wait to take Rifle 2.
Paul taught my class. He was easy to understand, helpful, and attentive. He embodies the WPS ethos. Anyone with no experience, or even basic experience will gain much from this course. Highly recommend.
